Take a Page – Beth Eilers

Every other week, Omaha Public Library shares what our patrons are reading with the Omaha World-Herald. This week, Saddlebrook Branch patron Beth Eilers shares five of her favorite reads:


1. Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. I loved reading about the not-so-fictional account of Mamah’s love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright and the tragic end to their affair.

2. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant. I was really taken by the story Dinah tells, and especially by the way the lives of biblical women was portrayed.

3. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I couldn’t put this down once I figured out that Henry was coming and going randomly in Clare’s life. This book was a great combination of love story and science fiction.

4. East of Eden by John Steinbeck. I loved this book for the pure skill of Steinbeck’s writing. It’s one I want to read over and over again.

5. It’s a Book by Lane Smith. This is a hilarious commentary on today’s overwhelming digital presence. It’s disguised as a children’s picture book, but really, truly for adults.
